Cheap Home Styling Tips to Get that Magazine Look
We all wanted to have that perfect home like it’s featured in House & Garden or Architectural Digest magazines. But we often wondered if making some changes to our house would be way out of our budget. Even our favourite HGTV shows feature homes that often require a lot of resources to get the home decorating right.
The truth of the matter is that there are ways to do these things without breaking the bank. You just have to be creative enough to do it. Here are some cheap styling tips to get that home magazine look:
Greenery Adds Life
Sometimes putting some plants indoors would give your house some life. It’s the easiest and simplest decor you can use. Try adding some flowers, fresh vegetables, and other greenery from your backyard. Getting a simple vase full of fresh flowers would freshen up the look. Think about planters that double as your herb garden.
Make Your Bath a Hotel Spa
You don’t have to go extreme by putting a sauna bath or changing the whole bathroom tiles, you just have to introduce new elements that would elevate your whole bathroom experience. Try to replicate some of the features you see at posh hotels and luxurious spa retreats - it’s all about enriching your senses. Get new towels, lovely shower curtains, scented candles, shampoo, lotion, and all sorts of bathroom accessories.
Throw Some Pillows
Not starting a pillow fight here but having them in your living room will make your home cozy and inviting to your guests. It’s all about mixing and matching different colours and textures as well as varying shapes and sizes. Don’t be afraid to make a statement and be bold.
Remove the Clutter
The best way to make your interior pleasing to the eyes is to remove all the unnecessary furnishings, appliances, and clutter around you. Hide them all. This will immediately declutter and give your space a fresh and clean feel.
Basket, Bowls, and Trays
If you happen to read a lot of home design magazines, you will see some rustic elements added here and there in the form of baskets, bowls, and trays. They are not only stylish but functional! This is another great way to add pops of colour to your style at home. However, don’t overdo it so you won’t end up cluttering.
One of the many elements that homeowners tend to overlook is the curtain. They add a certain depth to your home design so if you’re creative enough, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on expensive silks, damasks, or velvet curtains.
Update your Lighting
Your choice of lighting style makes a lot of difference in your interior design so whether you go for your LED lamps or your flush-mounted lights, any slight change would go a long way. Try putting your own design spin on your current lighting.
Put a Statement Piece
There should be something that would make your home unique and that is adding your own statement piece. It could be an antique rug you bought at the flea market, an old piece of furniture that you fixed, or a modern couch you bought on eBay. Make it the centerpiece of your home.
Whether you want to impress your family and friends at your next reunion or you just want to have an Airbnb-ready home that you can rent out, having these key elements would make a difference and elevate your home design.
